2012-2013 Financial Aid Meeting planned for Tuesday, December 18 at 5:30 p.m. in the ICN room in the southeast corner of the elementary building. This is the same evening as the elementary concert, so I have set the time earlier in case some parents want to attend both functions. This is the night several different kidns of scholarship applications will be availble for parents or students to pick up. If you need scholarship applications, be at this meeting! This meeting is for seniors as well as their parents. A lot of information on completing the financial aid form or FAFSA is provided on this evening, so please don't miss this meeting!! Juniors and their parents are also welcome to attend if they want to learn about financial aid. If, for some reason, school has to be dismissed early because of inclement weather, this meeting will be postponed until a later date, and the new date will be listed on this website.
Students will have to send a photo of themselves to ACT by a specified date prior to testing. There are deadlines for when the photos have to be received, and there is a sheet in the ACT packet which provides these deadlines.
Students must provide 3 First Class stamps if they are planning to use the paper form. You may also registration for the ACT online by going to http://www.actstudent.org/
Mrs. Beck has some fee waivers that will cover the cost of testing once, providing students meet certain qualifications. See her for more information.
Seniors who have test once and want to retest should try to do so by the next testing. This will help you be ready to apply for college and scholarships. Seniors (who will be eventually attending four-year colleges) who have not yet tested also need to test soon.
Most 2-year college programs require the Compass test; therefore, seniors planning to enroll in 2-year college programs need to be taking the Compass test soon instead. They must make appointments to test with Mrs. Beck. The Compass test is administered at the SWCC Osceola site.
